Starting here:


build.rkt goes through downloads/code and finds the rkt files (which
are written in scribble/lp) and then uses the Text renderer plus a
bunch of Markdown functions/macros to produce what looks good (this is
in post.rkt) plus the meta-data that octopress wants

It's pretty good, although I think I'd like to use Scriblogify too
